Lola Mae is my mommy. She would be mad if she knew I used Lola Mae on my blog. Today is my mommy’s birthday. Yes, I still call her mommy. She has taught me many things. But I learned more by watching her. Watching her handle situations and circumstances with grace. I saw her help others, pray with people and go above and beyond to keep her word.
I’m sure that a lot of my family really didn’t know about autism when they heard about Sydney’s diagnosis. Since we have moved here they had a crash course in autism 101. Mommy recently went to Syd’s last IEP meeting with me. She walked away having a better understanding of how stressful those meetings can be.
Mommy is a breast cancer survivor. I watched her when she was battling cancer and going through her treatment. I saw a woman who praised God for her healing daily. She claimed victory and prepared her testimony that she would one day share with others. It was watching my mommy, that I knew faith could move mountains.
I can never repay her for the love and support she has shown to Harrison and Sydney. We celebrate her everyday. I had to blog about my mommy today. I am still learning from her. Without my mommy in my life I would not be the mom I am to my children today.
